The recovery of the FTSE 100 from its March 2009 low of 3500 continued at a reasonable pace reaching 5800 in April 2010 a fairly remarkable increase of 63% in the major indices in little over a year. Some sectors were just going phenomenally well and in particular, house builders were simply rocketing. The likes of Barratt Developments, Taylor Wimpy that had seen a 95% fall in its value over the financial crisis had regained a significant portion of their loss but were still some 80% down from their pre-financial crisis share price; a real measure of the rout that had occurred in some sectors. I wish I had invested in more house builders at the time but unfortunately had only invested in one, the partly bombed out AIM listed Telford homes in 2009 which were doing well enough over this period and in the construction sector another love-hate stock Costain. Is it not strange that somehow we all have a share or so in our portfolio who’s figures and outlook say the right things yet continually frustrate and disappoint in terms of stock price appreciation. Yet we have that almost certain knowledge that should we sell the stock it will immediately appreciate in value.

Last week we looked at the AIM 100 to identify another 36 stocks that qualify.
Today we’re going to whittle that list of 80 down to a final portfolio of 50 stocks.

Welcome to the 23rd SHARE TALK’S CONKERS’ CORNER recorded on 8th July 2016. In this interview I have the pleasure of speaking with @RegHoare Reg Hoare, who is a Managing Director at MHP Financial.
As the son of a farmer Reg did not have the opportunity to follow his Dad into the family business as it had not gone so well. He instead went off to Bristol University, where he successfully completed his Degree in Politics which had a big segment in Economics. The City which had been an “alien place” to Reg prior to his studies, now as a graduate seemed “like the logical place to go”. Therefore Reg applied for Graduate Trainee Opportunities in the City and was successful in gaining a position with Laurie Milbank a Stockbroking Partnership firm in 1983.

Mining & Metals: New episode of Share Views with Charles Gibson.
Well, things had been chugging along well enough since the Iraq invasion back in early 2003 and by the end of 2007, the portfolio was looking in a very healthy state. I was really enjoying my investment life almost more so than my professional life. I was employed by an excellent company, essentially the same company for over thirty years. I had grown within that company, my career flourished and I had in truth been far more successful than my humble ambitions ever warranted.
